Product Technology Portfolio

Polyimide Thermofoil Heaters

Thin, lightweight, rugged and flexible heater providing highly accurate and reliable performance.  Ideal for applications with space and weight limitations, or where the heater will be exposed to vacuum, oil, or chemicals.

  • Provides heat where it’s needed to reduce operating costs
  • Fast and efficient thermal transfer
  • Uniform thermal performance by custom profiling
  • Customized options for turnkey thermal solutions

All-Polyimide Heaters

High performance alternative to Minco’s standard polyimide flexible heaters, enabling higher temperatures and watt densities than any other flexible film heater.

  • Maximum operating temperature of 260°C
  • Provides heat where it’s needed to reduce operating costs
  • Fast and efficient thermal transfer
  • Uniform thermal performance by custom profiling
  • Customized options for turnkey thermal solutions

Silicone Rubber Heaters (foil)

Suited for large-size, industrial and ruggedized applications. Constructed of rugged, flexible elastomer material with excellent temperature properties.

  • High reliability in a wide range of applications.
  • Optional custom profiled heat density for uniform heat sink temperature
  • Factory vulcanization and high temperature capability allows higher wattage levels

Thermal-Clear Transparent Heaters

Accurate, reliable heat for applications requiring a transparent heater material.

  • Custom heater element routing and profiling optimizes the LCD visual clarity
  • Tight resistance tolerance provides constant and repeatable wattage output for longer battery life
  • Low mass and high watt density offers faster warm up time needed for immediate LCD response
  • Rugged materials prevent damage during installation and handling

Mica Heaters

Ultimate temperature and wattage capability for fast warm-up.

  • Broad temperature range of -150º to 600°C (-238° to 1112°F) provides faster processing and cycle times
  • High watt density capability provides faster processing times than conventional mica strip heaters
  • Custom profiled heat density and mechanical clamping offers uniform heat sink temperature
  • UL certification is available

PTFE (Teflon™) Heaters

Clean, non-stick, chemically-inert PTFE for use in applications such as acid baths, medical equipment, commercial appliances.

  • Etched-foil elements sandwiched between rugged layers of FDA-approved PTFE (Teflon®)
  • Stand up to environments that would destroy conventional metal-clad heating elements
